Sensible Software‘s brilliant Cannon Fodder is possibly their finest hour.
From the hilarious intro song, to the compelling action of the main game – Cannon Fodder is about as much fun as computerised war, with little titchy men and a mouse could possibly be.
War really has never been so much fun, and this classic game is maybe even the best war game ever made. You can tell that the makers understand the realities of war, and their depiction of it is merely satire. Glorious satire.
Anyway, if you’ve never played Cannon Fodder before: you are missing out. There are a number of versions around. Personally, I think that the Amiga version is the best. The intro music is the best quality, and the feel of the mouse control and scrolling is just about perfect. Only downside are the loading times, but they’re not too bad overall.
Cannon Fodder is another solid gold retro gaming classic – not to be missed. Get it going in an Amiga emulator if you can.
